Apparently he was super super shy and took public speaking lessons when he started at BCG so he could eventually learn to sell work. Clearly it worked out for him!

Which Salesforce opportunity should I take?

BVS Analyst: Pre-sales
Success Associate: Post-sales

Both roles seem to be a good fit but the BVS role would be a paycut (~23% of my current salary) and title downgrade while the Success role would be a big pay increase (~30%). From my understanding, the BVS organization is a much more well-regarded group in SFDC.

Any SFDC 🐠 have more insight?

Longstanding AOR Relationships

Can anyone point me to an existing, famously successful AOR relationship example? I was going to use Arnold + Jack Daniels but it looks like they lost JD last year. I imagine Leo, The Martin Agency or someone might have a client or two that's been around for a decade plus? Please reserve your snarky responses for other posts. Thanks all!
